comment Range of summation in simple Plot seems off
Yes, these plots are on page 552 of the second edition of Mathematica in Action. The equation he uses is on page 549, which should have a minus sign in front. Equation (***) on top of page 550 is correct, and it includes a sum of 154 terms, which is an approximation justified by Riesel and Gohl, Mathematics of Computation, v24, p969, 1970. I think, but Stan may not agree with me, that in general the upper limit of the sum should be Floor[Log[2,x]].

comment Finding large prime gaps
No ideas yet, looking through my books... Have you seen papers by Bertil Nyman and Thomas Nicely? and references therein?
